North London Litfest Set to Rock

Award-winning authors Michèle Roberts, James Herbert, Lucy Caldwell and Andrew Simms will be included in a cast of high-profile writers, poets and journalists who will be lighting up Hendon at the North London Literary Festival on March 26 and 27th.

To be held at Middlesex University, the two-day festival will feature readings, publishing workshops and writing competitions open to everyone. Embracing new technologies will be a focus for the festival as the publishing industry begins its radical shift towards the online market and away from 400 years of print tradition.

Faber, one of London’s most respected publishing houses, will be chairing a discussion group on where the industry is heading and inviting any questions the public may have for them.

The free two day festival will also include speed pitching, an innovative new idea that is like speed dating. It offers a chance for all attendees to pitch their ideas to a top London agent and to receive feedback on how marketable their work could be in the current publishing environment.
